On the 29 October 2023, in the heart of Singapore, a closed circuit spanning 3.0 kilometers will host the prestigious Criterium. This event marks a significant milestone as it represents the second time the Tour de France has graced Singapore with its presence, a decade after the inaugural Criterium held in Asia.
Cycling enthusiasts and the general public alike will have a unique opportunity to witness the skills and talents of renowned cyclists, including Tadej Pogacar, Jasper Philipsen, and Giulio Ciccone, who collectively represent three of the four distinctive jerseys of the 110th edition of the Tour de France.
Tadej Pogacar, the back-to-back winner of the Tour de France in 2020 and 2021, will make his debut appearance at an Asian Criterium, adding an extra layer of excitement to the event. Joining him are cycling legends such as Chris Froome, a four-time Tour de France champion, Mark Cavendish, holder of an astonishing 34 Tour de France stage victories, and Peter Sagan, a three-time World Champion and multiple-time winner of the green jersey.
Expect to see other accomplished riders and stage winners, including Egan Bernal, Sepp Kuss, Victor Lafay, Pello Bilbao, Carlos Rodriguez, and many more, all gracing the event with their presence.
